We can help employers with the selection and implementation of new pension scheme arrangements that help meet the demands of auto-enrolment legislation and member engagement. Our knowledge of trusteeship is particularly useful in working with employers in the introduction of Master Trust arrangements where we understand the due diligence necessary from a trustee perspective to help with the subsequent transition of scheme assets where appropriate.
What we can do to help
As well as helping design and implement an effective governance framework to help you assess the ongoing value for money and performance of your scheme and your advisers, we can also help you to:
Provide a strategic overview – this includes reviewing your Defined Contribution pension provision via either own-trust or an alternative Master Trust solution
Review your existing providers – whatever type of pension scheme you have we can benchmark and assess your existing providers against the current market.
Transition project management – provide independent project management to oversee transition between own-trust and Master Trust arrangements
Implement an employer management committee – your employer governance committee acts in a purely advisory capacity. It should identify any risks to the employer and scheme members and recommend ways to manage and reduce these risks. We can help design a suitable governance framework and be an independent member of the committee as appropriate.
Our Employer pensions consultancy services and fees are tailored to meet the specific needs of the employer and workforce.
